The co-locating of two Clarion Gaming events, Juegos Miami (May 30 - June 1) and GiGse (May 31 - June 1) has paid off. The two American events, Juegos Miami aimed at Latin America, and GiGse aimed at North America, will both take place on overlapped dates at The Biltmore, Miami.

Each will have conference programmes dedicated to themselves, training “master classes” and combined C-level networking opportunities.

Expanding on the benefits of bringing both brands to a single venue over the same dates, Kym Sleezer, president of the Tripple Ripple Group, said: “Having the US-focused GiGse at this year’s Juegos Miami will fully enrich the experience of all participants.

“It is very interesting to have the privilege of knowing about the opportunities and challenges, how different markets solve them and make the most of them.

“The global development of gaming has been based partly on other markets practices. Topics such as commercial and operative management, regulation, legal frameworks and taxes are a constant reference when it comes to our direct markets. Therefore some information, which may not be relevant today, will be necessary in the future and vice versa.”

The joining up of the two events has been approved across both sectors.

Hugo Baungartner, COO at Brazilian consultancy RCT Gaming, added: “Bringing a Pan-Latin American event and a North American one together under one roof will be an excellent opportunity for global operators to showcase to US entrepreneurs that they have the technology and expertise to work effectively in that market."
